Boom Island Witness

This 5.0% ABV bottle-conditioned Belgian-style wit bier is from Boom Island Brewing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Yes, the bottle goes there and says "Can I get a witness?"

The beer pours a hazed golden color. There is nearly an inch of white foamy head. The aroma is highly spiced, loads of coriander, a bit tart. The taste is actually more subdued, toasted wheat, spices, but lighter than the aroma, with a very light tart note. There is a mild bitterness and lingering spice on the finish. The beer drinks easy and crisply carbonated. They did a good representation of the style here, and the light tart note makes it more refreshing than the overly spiced versions you commonly find.
